    Just tried it again with a new Windows 10 install. Same result, do updates, eventually screen goes black and nothing else. Reboot, happens over and over and over. Really disappointed in HP.

    4 years after purchase, the hard drive is crapping out on me. Envy 15-3033cl. I was getting ready to get a new lappy this summer anyways, but this sped up my timeline.

    I still think the Envy is in great shape other than the hard drive, though. I plan on replacing it with an SSD and giving it to my daughter, she's 6 but likes Minecraft and Animal Jam and watching Taylor Swift videos on youtube, so it should be able to handle that just fine.

    Owner of an Envy 15t-3200 for 4 years now, and everything has been running great. I felt like posting here because I read through every single page of this thread, all 261 pages, because I wanted to learn more about this laptop in case I missed out on anything. Strangely, I feel like it was worth it to do so.

    In terms of current updates...

    I upgraded my RAM for 6gb to 8gb and that has been a blast.
    I upgraded my HDD to a SSD and that has been a blast.
    I downgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 7 and that has been a blast.

    I've been loving this laptop so far and it has been reliable over the years, no major issues or deal breakers come to mind.

    Hi Guys,

    Am investigating if the Envy 15 30xx disables the Intel iGPU with the latest BIOS in Windows 10.

    Is this the case?

    "is it true that the max SSD these envy 15t 3200 will support is 300gb"

    No, it is NOT true. It might have been the largest SSD that HP supplied at the time the unit was introduced.

    Very interesting. Again thank you for the reply.

    It could mean that 3200 3D and 3200 non 3D might be totally different when it comes to mux chips.

    But that doesn't make sense if they wanted to reduce costs during production.

    More likely that they never enabled the switching off of Intel on Windows 10 + newest BIOS.

    I need to investigate further. Thanks again!
